Please consider submitting a paper proposal for the approved PAMLA session, "Dime Novels and Pulp Fiction" (for the 2013 PAMLA Conference at the Bahia Resort Hotel, San Diego, CA: November 1-3, 2013). This session will explore the largely forgotten or ignored dime-novel--the American pulp novels of the 19th and early 20th centuries, including Westerns, detective stories, school stories, romance tales, or early science fiction. All aspects of the phenomenon of the dime-novel and later pulp fiction are fair game.

8th Global Conference
Exploring the Erotic

Tuesday 17th September – Thursday 19th September 2013
Oxford, United Kingdom

Call for Presentations
Mapping the field of the erotic is a complex and frustrating endeavour; as something which permeates lived experience, interpersonal relationships, intellectual reflection, aesthetic tastes and sensibilities, the erotic is clearly multi-layered and requires a plethora of approaches, insights and perspectives if we are to better to understand, appreciate and define it.

Courtliness and Convention (9/1/13; 10/10/13-10/12/13)

Wednesday, March 27, 2013 - 9:55am
The Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference

The planning committee of the Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference seeks proposals for papers or panels from across today's theoretical and methodological landscape that engage Courtliness and Convention in the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. How do Shakespearean plays illustrate and critique early modern conceptions of conventional courtly behavior? More broadly, how do the era's plays and poems incorporate, problematize, and establish social convention – political, literary, educational, rhetorical, or otherwise? How do we understand the conventions of courtliness in today's theaters and classrooms?
